  • Part one of three-film series launched
  • Films pay tribute to player who fought in the war 

At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them

As part of the RFU’s World War I Commemorations, the RFU commissioned a series of three films telling of thousands of players who left rugby pitches for the battlefields, many never to return.

The films feature rugby heroes and the bonds between rugby, rugby values and the military, with narration from Lewis Moody, RFU Great War Ambassador, who interviews, among others, Martin Johnson, Neil Back and Rory Underwood in telling the stories of three England internationals who died: Ronnie Poulton-Palmer, John King and Cyril Lowe. 

Part one of the three-part series launches to the public on Monday 7 November 2016, with all three films premiered to an invited audience.
